They`ll fit a regular E90/E92 with minor fender rolling.
Interesting...the BBS spec et25 rear on my e92 w/ rolled fenders rubbed horribly. (on a conservative drop) I don't know how an et23 would ever work on an e92... ...maybe if you kept it 4x.

It is my understanding that the e92 and e90 have different maximum offsets(that still allow driveability)

A call to e90 mod veterans Longtran or Ksfrogman is in order.

...back in a bit.

Again, a 19x9.5ET23 will fit on a E92 with minor fender rolling.
o.k. under that definition wouldn't 22's fit too...

I didn't ask if they'll fit... I'm saying they don't. BMW and Longtran agree. (just asked him today when he called me)

"Fit" means allowing full travel and compression of the suspension w/o rubbing or binding during all types of driving conditions, especially when the wheels are turned...sorry forgot to clarify

...and I still wouldn't recommend putting the m3 offset on the standard e92. But I've only been changing wheels and suspension since 16" wheels were BIG...




16" Work mesh on my '88 13B...

We make wheels specifically for the E90/E92. We might know a bit about the topic.

Thanks Carlos, I see where you work...

rubbing is rubbing.. zero tolerance for me personally as an owner. I had et25 on my e92 as well.

We know et25 fit, but that's not what you said...

Bottom Line: The e92m3 19x9.5 et23 rear will not fit* the standard e92.

*see the definition of "fit" above.

FWIW: I do love your forged VS7

You are right. To finalize this we have fitted both 19x9.5ET25 and 19x9.5ET27 on a E92, however, apparently OEM E92 M3 wheels DO NOT fit a regular E92 unless heavy modifications are made.

Check here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=E92+M3+wheels

ps. Have you seen the VS8?
